Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Cough 1st ed. 2021 Edition
This book is a practical resource for clinicians who manage patients with chronic cough, which represents a major challenge in the clinic due to multiple diagnostic and therapeutic considerations. Essential assessments for cough and treatable traits are described, covering the upper and lower airways and the gastrointestinal tract, and appropriate treatments are identified according to the different findings and diagnoses. Based on recent mechanistic and clinical advances, the authors also discuss novel diagnostic and therapeutic options, including pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to control cough. Particular considerations of importance when dealing with chronic cough in children and the elderly are addressed separately. The book will be an invaluable guide and reference for all practitioners who require up-to-date information on how best to assess, diagnose, and treat patients with chronic cough.
